Cannot make motors move on XDC2460

8 months 1 week ago #29535274 by Hanoixan
Hello, I have two XDC2460 controllers that I am working with. In Roborun, I can easily show Motor Command 1|2 in the Run > Capture pane for one of them, but for the other I get no output.
* I've verified that I've sent the same configuration and basic script to both controllers.
* Both are running on 12V through VMot.
* No faults in the Run tab.
* Both have the same firmware (Roboteq v1.8d RCBXDC from 1/8/2018).
* I DO get get different status patterns: The well-functioning controller gives me 1s on, 1s off, with the bad controller I get 3 fast blinks on, and then 5 beats off.
How can I determine what the issue is, and whether the controller needs to be replaced?

Thanks,
Sean

Solved. I'm going to leave this here for other people making the same mistake. The 3-blink status meant that I was in Analog Mode (it shouldn't have been), and it was waiting for my inputs to center. I'm not sure how both controllers could have different Analog Mode settings given that I sent the same config to both, but here we are.
